Ahhh. That is pretty crippling then for an NVMe drive.I have the version with the 10GBe instead of the SFPs (wish i had the SFP Version!!!)
FYI i have a P3700 and P3520 (2.5 models) running on those NVME slots with a converter. No issues there, i think the only downside is the PCIe Speed is limited to 1x based on the diagrams.
My experience with Newegg sales where the sale lasts for more than a day or two, is they often get more stock before the sale period is over. So, if anyone wants one of these, it may be beneficial to check back on Newegg occasionally.Damn. Got caught up with a customer issue - first moment back to my desk I see this and it is gone already. Merry Christmas?
About a year ago, I found a Supermicro server board listed for $29 and an Asrock Rack workstation board for $39 while surfing gear on Newegg. I didn't have a need for either at the time, but I was certain I could come up with one at those prices! So I "bought" both. The next morning they'd cancelled the Supermicro and the price was up to the $400+ it should have been going for. The Asrock, on the other hand, did ship!ad to have been a price error, either way had there been available stock I would have jumped on that.
Currently using it to serve up a datastore for my vmware cluster, allowing me to do some maintenance on the storage appliance normally handling the datastores.not bad what are you plans for this box? (ie what OS / hv and use case?)
You would be really lucky for someone to sell you one of these for $179.Really bummed I missed out on this deal, if anyone is having buyers remorse I'll certainly take it off your hands
